A 20-year-old Pennsylvania woman that served in the National Guard passed last weekend in a training accident, according to military officials.

A specialist named Mackenzie Shay of New Castle died on October 22 in a crash involving two military vehicles at Fort Indiantown Gap in Lebanon County. Three other soldiers that were involved in the car accident and sustained minor injuries got released from Hershey Medical Center.

Shay’s mother, Tina Lee, spoke with the New York Post about her daughter’s tragic death saying she “can’t even begin” to describe how the family is feeling.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Specialist
Mackenzie Shay’s family, friends, and colleagues after this tragic accident,” Army Maj. Gen. Mark J. Schindler said in a statement. “Our priority right now is taking care of the family and soldiers, ensuring they have all the resources they need during this critical time.”

The cause of the accident remains under investigation. Shay was a 92F Army petroleum supply specialist assigned to the 28th Infantry Division’s Company G, 128th Brigade Support Battalion. She graduated from Mohawk High School in 2020 and was a student at Slippery Rock University.
